with wall-to- wall attention. >> reporter: democratic senator dianne feinstein of california, a long time leader in gun control, called the n.r.a.'s plan a distraction that's only intended to delay action by congress. >> should we have a conversation about school security? yes. should we have a conversation about mental illness and the culture of violence? yes. but we can't ignore the common denominator in all of these deadly massacres: access, easy access to killing machines. >> reporter: the fact is, scott, that one-third of america's public schools already have armed security and it's interesting to note an armed deputy sheriff was assigned to columbine high school near denver in 1999 but failed to stop that attack that killed 13. >> pelley: chip, thank you very much. of course, the best thing is to prevent a mass shooting and the united states secret service has spent years studying assassins and school shooters in order to do just that. brian vossekuil and robert fein wrote two studies for the secret service and they told us in an interview for "60 minutes" that gunmen often leave a

when dianne feinstein says she's going to introduce this bill, how likely is it to pass and how likely is anything to happen as far as gun control is concerned? >> there's no question that the sentiment has shift ed. we have been reporting on joe mansion who was an a vid supporter saying he's flipped and he wants there to be gun control measures. but he is a pretty safe senator when it comes to the politics of his state. he could be senator for life if he wants to, he's very popular. there are other people up for reelection who are not as safe. they are from gun rights states. many of them are democrats. it's still going to be an uphill battle. there's no chemical weapon about it. it goes back to what we have been talking about since this horrible tragedy happened, which is the main reason why democrats have silent until the newtown tragedy is because it's bad politics. many of them have believed that for the past decade. bad politics in red states to even talk about the idea of gun control. not so much because of the money that the nra puts in but because they are very powerful in gin

made it very difficult, of course, for senators based there to do their work. so senator dianne feinstein's staff joined in my offices in the russell building. my chief of staff at the time gave them full access. one of senator feinstein's staff members commented on that. "a republican office giving democrats free rein?" but my chief of staff just said, they had full access because we trusted them. senator feinstein and i have teamed up to pass important legislation. the hutchison-feinstein overseas basing commission that studied the training capabilities and costs ofverseas military bases to determine their value compared to american bases. this resulted in consolidation and closures that brought thousands of troops back to the united states where training and rapid deployment were superior. we passed the feinstein-hutchison breast cancer stamp bill. through voluntary purchase it has raised $72 million for breast cancer research. that was senator feinstein's idea. and senator feinstein and i took the amber ale for abducted children nationwide, which has accounted for rescuing d

're seeing dianne feinstein there on the senate floor. it is vacant on the house side. so in truth how much is really going to get done? >> well, gregg, a lot of this negotiations are really taking place between the leadership levels right now. we don't really have to worry about what is happening on the house floor. it's about what is going on at the white house. now, the president today is going to meet with congressional leaders from both parties, both chambers. they will sit down. they will talk about a potential deal. the president might offer something that maybe the republicans could go for. it wouldn't be a sweeping deal. gregg: like what? >> might be something smaller. well, it would be something that could potentially avoid the major tax hikes coming in january. that is the most politically treacherous for these members. they need to find a way to stop taxes going up for everybody. if there is a deal it will probably focus on the range of taxes that are coming. gregg: susan, the house passed a bill that extends all the tax cuts. the senate passed a bill that extends it for everybo

and merry christmas. >> dave:. and let's start with dianne feinstein and the letter, they're saying enhanced interrogation techniques did not lead to the capture of usama bin laden? do they stretch the truth. i haven't seen the film and let's face it it's not a documentary, it's a movie. unfortunately, with all due respect to the senators, i think they're probably a too little too late that the film is about to be released, they're not going to change anything, they probably should have been more when the makers given high level access and the administration working closely with them. a too little too late. >> dave: you brought up a good point. the obama administration worked closely with producers, so if there were inaccuracies taken by the hollywood studios and katherine bigelow and company, isn't it based on actual conversations with government officials? >> well, that's what -- the perception would be, because they were working very closely with them and what's interesting, you bring up a good point, where is the administration? i mean, they obviously vigorously came out against that an
